A loan of $650 helped to buy farming supplies..

Sabrina Yamileth's story

Sabrina has a sixth grade education, is married, and the mother of two children, ages 5 and 12. They live with her and attend school. Her husband works as a security guard and Sabrina is a farmer and also sells cosmetics via catalog.

She has been farming for 10 years and has lots of experience. She learned from her parents and was not able to attend school for very long, given their level of poverty, and she was not able to do anything else. She works a few meters from her house and sells pupusas on the weekends.

She is asking for this loan to buy seeds, compost, and other supplies for raising corn. She hopes that this loan will allow her to have better production and income for her family so she can pay some family expenses.

She has had one previous loan and things went well, so she is requesting a second one so she can continue working.
